WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS

12 comments





This Christmas was our ('our' being mine and George's) first Christmas together in our new home, so it was a special one. As it was our first, I insisted we had to have a real tree, stockings, advent calenders - the works. I love Christmas, always have always will. It's a great excuse to spoil everyone I love and consequently I always get spoilt in return and this year was no different. I always feel very blessed Christmas morning.

Here's a selection of what I got this Christmas, George was very good and paid good attention to my hints. As subtle as they always are - (sending links via iMessage). At the top of my list, in joint postition, was GlamGlow and Aesop. I certainly didn't expect to receive both. The 2 books I really wanted this Christmas was Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes and How to be Parisian - so pleased to have the both to read I've read such awesome reviews so can't wait to get started. There always seems to be LUSH presents under the tree and this year was no exception, with both me and George swearing that 'nope not this year, I promise I haven't got you anything from LUSH!' but low and behold we lied to each other but that's a great white lie, I think. I've wanted to try ultrabland for a while now just never remembered that that was the case when I was in LUSH stores. The Stable Hands hand cream was actually something we came across together when shopping in Chester a few weeks before Christmas and being an ex-horse owner I loved the packaging and I always need hand cream for work so George picked it up for me. The This Works cracker, which contains deep sleep body therapy, was a nice surprise and it's nice to try out the smaller sizes before committing to the full sized product.

So that's it, Christmas over. Time to pack up the tinsel and take down the tree because the sales have started! I've already been bad.. 

I hope you all had a great Christmas, I'd love to here what you guys got this year!

  3. Fantastic gifts! I love the Parisian book and great selection of Lush goodies! My boyfriend insisted he hadn't bought me anything from Lush either but its the first year I've been able to sniff out where he'd hidden my presents! xx
